Sorry! There are no remaining departures for "South Africa Volunteer and Overland Adventure" (DAPS), but here are some similar trips.


For the 2013 year, we've adjusted the itinerary of this tour, removing a day in Botswana in favour of another day in South Africa, helping to split up some long travel days.

South Africa Volunteer and Overland Adventure

28 days,Cape Town to Livingstone

Volunteering for community projects, feeling small while contemplating Victoria Falls and giant sand dunes, finding the Big Five in Etosha, meeting the San Bushmen at the Kalahari's edge, cruising the Chobe River at sunset.


There are no departure dates currently available for the rest of this season. Some tours only run during parts of the year.
